Is the manga reader any good?  I can't get a free trial since I'm already a premium member...(does that make sense to anyone?)

A lot of these online manga readers are pretty crappy...I tried using Jmanga back in the day to support the industry and all that and look how that turned out...

It's okay. Still has some issues to work out. It has one of those Magnifiers that always goes a set resolution, which sucks for me, since with my funky screen resolution, the full screen doesn't quite go full screen, instead having a White border along the bottom and sides. But if I magnify it, it cuts stuff off. Not that it matters, it goes back to the default every time your turn the page.

It also has this bar on the bottom that has your settings, Magnifyer option, Chapter select, and an orange bar that fills as you go through the chapter and lets you easily select which page you'd like to go to. On the chapter I tried, it never quite fills all the way up, even when I'm on the last page, and trying to click on the last page was difficult since I had to find just the right spot. I also noticed a slight loading time when trying to go from the beginning to the end, and when trying to load up the next chapter.

Overall, it's pretty fast, clean, and mostly functional. I've certainly used worse. I think I might continue using it, at least for Space Brothers and Fairy Tail. Speaking of which:
Did they just kill off Grey while he was distracted by Julia's idiocy? I mean, I can't imagine that they'd kill one of their best characters in such an embarassing way, but he did kinda get turned into swiss cheese...so if he lives, it's bullcrap. Kinda stuck in a bind there, Mr. writer...

Just started.

I see, I haven't been on there over a month, so I wasn't sure. Nice, hope it pans out better than the webcomic thing did.

Yay, One Piece is coming to Crunchyroll! Now I no longer have to deal with Hulu for new episodes! <3

Also...how long has Crunchyroll had Manga? :O If they keep adding Fairy Tail, I might go read some of that. They got a lot of Space Brothers, too...

It's the best F2P game I've played. Which really isn't that much, but it was good fun.

Yeah, the trailer for Coppelion made it look like it was just trying to be over-the-top action, so I went into it expecting it to not take itself seriously. Now that I've seen that it's actually trying to be serious, I'm more than a little put-off by it. Granted, just because it takes itself seriously doesn't mean I have to, so I may still get some joy out of it, but it's no longer a priority.

Nadia, Secret of Blue Water is....OK I guess, just hasn't "wowed" me, although Little Lady likes it a lot so OK. Really found my self hooked on Big Wind-Up! Big Time, lol

I really enjoyed Nadia more than I probably should've. :P And I keep hearing Big Wind-Up is great, and though I'm not much of a baseball fan, I'm tempted to watch it someday. That and, like, 5 other baseball anime...

Personally there's a lot out for this season that interest me. I think all of them will have their first episode out by the end of the week, so maybe I'll give some impressions for those once I've seen them all?

Well, certainly sounds promising, at least. I need to see how the combat works, though.

I was told this was just a beta for the SteamOS. That guy was a damn liar. This is interesting news after all.

@Annubis - Bubblegum Crisis is pretty good...just don't watch it Dubbed. That's the worst English dub I've ever heard...
1301  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust making a spiritual successor to Ar Tonelico: Ar no Surge on: September 24, 2013, 10:01:50 PM
Yeah, I'm hoping for the best for this one. The third Ar Tonelico turned out to be all kinds of disappointment...
1302  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: September 20, 2013, 03:28:39 PM

Thanks for the tips. I've been tempted to restart SRW:OG, though I've kinda been playing the same save for so long that I don't know how comfortable I'd be doing that...but I don't think I'll get where I want to be without doing that...

In the meantime, I've been playing Phantasy Star II. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit so far. It's slow, the stats are bullcrap, the dungeons are unnecessarily maze-like with stuff in the foreground that can obstruct your view, and the story, even for a game of its age is kinda loopy...yet I find it has a certain charm to it, and I can't put it down. I'm exploring the Biolab now, though I think I'll need to wait until I can get Rudo a new pair of guns before I get too far in.

The concept (and concept art) looks good, yet another kickstarter game to keep an eye on...not that I'm complaining.
1304  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls 2 on: September 19, 2013, 08:28:04 PM
I'm probably the only one disappointed that it might be a lot harder than the previous game. :P I think the first Dark Souls was about as much as I could take. I played it before I played Demon's Souls, and I think Demon's Souls broke me and killed my interest in hard games...again...(I though Demon's Souls was harder than Dark Souls). Sad to say, I'll probably be skipping this one, though I do hope it's successful regardless.
1305  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sega buying Atlus on: September 18, 2013, 06:52:29 PM
Yggs right, I misread a report (though the title didn't help) basically saying Sega's "putting a greater focus on PC gaming" which for some reason I assumed meant that Sega was turning PC only...
